Many women fear the appearance of aging worse than just about any other cosmetic problem associated with their face. Crows’ feet, tiny lines at the corner of a woman’s eyes, are often the first sign of aging, and one of the most common reasons for cosmetic surgery. However, there is nothing that says a home remedy cannot be an adequate substitute for a facelift in this case, and some of these at-home treatments work just as well as surgery without all of the dangerous side effects or hefty price tags.
Getting rid of crows’ feet does not have to mean trip to the operating room and a long recovery time. Moisturize the area frequently in order to keep crows’ feet from appearing in the first place, or to at least prolong the inevitable. Let’s face facts, we all age, and aging takes a toll on our bodies. When we spend the majority of our time outdoors, these signs of aging become more apparent much earlier in life (around the 30-year mark instead of closer to 40). Make sure to use a cream that offers glycolic acid, which encourages the growth of skin cells that are fresh and new, replacing wrinkles.
This video will show you some of the hazards that are common when you try to get rid of crow’s feet through the use of plastic surgery:
Another way to is by using sunscreen. The sun is the biggest contributing factor to this sign of aging, and protecting your sensitive skin can be a great way to make use of proactive remedies. Reapply the sunscreen as needed, and wear a hat or sunglasses to further protect your face.
There are some other very effective home remedies for getting rid of crows’ feet once they have begun to appear. They include, but are not limited to:
The Citrus Remedy. Blend a teaspoon of lemon juice with a tablespoon of orange extract. Apply this mixture directly to the crows’ feet, and leave this on the skin for 10 minutes. This method offers very fast results.
An Oily Approach. Oil is a natural lubricant, and works great for this application. Blend a tablespoon of castor oil with an equal amount of sesame oil. Apply to your whole face. Leave the mixture on your face overnight, and rinse well with warm soapy water in the morning.
The A’s Have It. Finally, one of the most popular at-home wrinkle remedies involves avocado and almond. Blend three teaspoons of sweet almond with a whole avocado. Dab the mixture on the fine lines and leave on for about fifteen minutes. This works great for fine lines all over the face.
It is not a must to opt for expensive and dangerous facelifts for crows feet when there are so many at-home remedies that work just as well for a fraction of the price and virtually no downtime at all. With no recovery needed, they are definitely an excellent alternative to going under the knife!
